ETAP’S K1 recessed emergency lighting range are small and sleek in nature that the size is determined by the emergency gear needed to fit into the plaster ceiling. Its beautifully curved emergency flange hold the emergency optics and the testing indicators, available in a robust polycarbonate matte-white. This is suitable for environments that have IK04 and IP42 requirements.
ETAP offer 2 optics for optimal performance: the anti-panic lens distributes light in a square area for even illumination including corners and the escape-route lens provides an elongated beam for passages and corridors. The escape-route lens will give a 19.2m beam (based on 2.7m ASNZ2293 tables, see below) allowing designers to use less fittings, subject to ASNZ2293-18 guidelines.
The K1 offers “ESM” monitored testing or “EST+” comprehensive self-testing. The EST+ runs regular tests on function, LED function and with a built in light sensor, EST+ will ensure the light output is to ASNZ2293 requirement of 9 Candela, battery duration tests and function. between 2 – 4 times a year the battery is drained to 90 minutes and recharged for duration testing and battery health. The face plate has a small indicator to alert building maintenance of the product function.
All ETAP Exits and Emergencies come with NiMH (Nickel-Metal Hydride) batteries as standard. When Cadmium Batteries were banned, ETAP switched to NiMH on their entire emergency and exit lighting range. Not only are they cadmium-free, they also consume less energy and are 50% more compact.
Lithium has been proven to be unstable in heat, flammable and harder to recycle at the end of the battery life. ETAP offer LPF (Lithium Iron Phosphate) batteries with a 10 year warranty on request.
